MSM change leadership of NZ Labour
The concerted push by the MSM to push Annette King out and anoint Jacinda Ardern has worked. King has said she is standing down and hopes Ardern will succeed her. Yet only yesterday King was professing her desire to stay.
So on the back of winning, in a by-election in a safe Labour seat and only a plurality of the vote in an election where only 23% of potential voters turned out, Ardern has been propelled by media promotion and/or she manipulated her advancement.
It remains to be seen if this improves Labour’s positioning.
